SME Business Elite Awards - Best Online Mattress & Bed Retailer 2024

In May of 2024, Mattress Online received its first award win of the year. We were grateful to be crowned one of the winners of SME’s Business Elite Awards for Best Online Mattress & Bed Retailer 2024. This award acknowledges our excellence and dedication as a leading small to medium-sized business enterprise in the UK.

Fast Growth 50 - North England 2023

The Fast Growth 50 Northern England 2023, Mattress Online placed 48

In November 2023, Mattress Online was proud to be ranked 48th on the inaugural Fastest Growth 50 list.

This list draws in businesses from across Yorkshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester and the North East regions, ranking them based on their growth over the last 12 months.

Founder of the Fast Growth 50, Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, said on the Fast Growth 50 website:

The UK Fast Growth 50 Index demonstrates that a small number of fast growth firms make a substantial contribution to the UK’s economic landscape, providing real examples of how innovation, enterprise and sheer hard work can make a real difference in all sectors from construction to financial services to technology.

Their incredible growth during difficult times shows that through generating wealth and jobs in their local communities, entrepreneurship is the cornerstone of regional and national prosperity. Most important of all, their success stories demonstrate the impact of ambition and adaptability, providing a blueprint for sustainable growth that will hopefully inspire others to follow a similar journey.
